Travelling to Bourton on the 801 Bus Service

Recent changes to the 801 bus service have impacted Northleach. Although the service frequency has been increased, most of the buses no longer stop on the town. Pulhams has clarified the changes to the 801 and how to make the journey to Bourton on the Water. The service you need will depend on which time of day you wish to travel. Please find this information below:

“The Service is now hourly and continues from Moreton in Marsh to Chipping Norton providing a link that was not available before. The bus is now timed to meet the trains in Moreton in Marsh that arrive from London. Northleach is still served on the morning journey that arrives in Bourton at 08:25 for students attending the Cotswold School and the return journey at 15:45. This is where we see most usage for Northleach residents. The mid morning bus to Northleach and early afternoon bus from Northleach  has been withdrawn as patronage was low and by including Northleach it took away the ability to operate an hourly clockface service that connected with the trains and was more attractive to a larger number of users. The 855 Service still operates to/from Northleach on one AM and one PM journey.

However, the good news is that ‘The Robin’ on demand service can be booked for journeys from Northleach to/from Bourton  that fall one hour outside of the 801/855 scheduled bus times therefore Northleach residents can utilise that service at a time to suit themselves.”

For ease of reference, the times between Northleach and Bourton are as follows:
